She was buried at the same cemetery where Willie Melvin Copeland (child of Effie & Thomas) was buried, Antioch, Gravel Ridge, AR Per Aunt Rosie: She was 97 years old when she died. (Aunt Rosie also remembers her as having gray hair and gray eyes. )
******************************* Notes from FTM version ***********************************
Debra Vannucci says Grandma Lizzie was born in Neshoba Co. MS, but was raised in Claiborne Parish, LA. No details yet on how she found this out.... She also provided the name of Lizzie' s paternal grandfather (Lewis Davis Adkins)
=================================================================================
Update 8/2000: Contacted by Debra Vannucci (3rd g-granddaughter of Lizzie) who has information on her parents. Provided confirmation of place-of-birth (MS) and said that her father was Benjamin Franklin Adkins, member of an "affluent" family.
Debra also provided information on Lizzie's first marriage to John Smith, and the children she knows of:
Columbus, James Malcolm, Rosina and "one other" that she can't remember.
==================================================================================
Update! Daddy, Lena, Granny and I went up to Bradley Co. AR and found Grandma Lizzie's grave. Buried at Antioch Baptist Church Cemetery, in "Gravel Ridge" AR (just outside of Hermitage).
Buried nearby are Uncle Will Vines and his wife Hettie Gorman Vines, plus some of their children. Washington Vines is nowhere to be seen. What happened to him?
==================================================================================
Update! Located Lizzie's family on the 1910 Census for the River Township in Bradley Co. AR. She is once again listed as "Nancy E. Vines" but this time she is clearly identifiable as our "Lizzie" because of the children she's listed with:
Name Age Marital Children Self Father Mother
Vines, Nancy E. 53 Widow 13 children born / 8 living now MS / MS / MS
Vines, Fred 14 S AR / AR / MS
Vines, Edgar 13 S AR / AR / MS
Vines, Effie 11 S AR / AR / MS
*******
Was married previously to an unknown "Smith" and had at least two sons by him, per Aunt Versie Copeland Reddick.
Krista Williams discovered 1920 Bradley County census records with Thomas & Effie Copeland's household and a "Nancy L. Vines" (age 66) living with them. Confusion reigns about the name, and whether this "Lizzie" could actually be "Nancy" (??? ) The dates match, as "Nancy" was 66 years old at the time of the 1920 census, she was living with Effie and listed as Thomas Copeland's mother-in-law. 1920 (minus) 66 years = 1854 (3 years older than the date on her tombstone, but women routin ely lied about their ages back then!!!)
Marriage records for the area show two Vines marriages:
Henry L. Vines, 24, m. Nancy Smith, aged 22. The license was applied for on 12/17/1879
Jackson Vines, 21, m. Elizabeth Hashborn, 22. License applied for 10/22/1868
If Nancy Smith is the same as our Lizzie, the d.o.b. would be correct (1857)
If Elizabeth Hashborn is the same as our Lizzie, the d.o.b would be off by eleven years.
To further complicate things, Krista's Aunt Ruby recalls Elizabeth's maiden name as being "something like Atkins" - The census says Effie's mother's name was "Nancy" --- yet Effie's daughters remember her as "Grandma Lizzie" -- ARgh, I'm confus ed.

131 "Willie Permelia White b: 28 Jun 1869 [Notes written by and provided by Mary Weaver Garcia]

Family Story by Mary Weaver Garcia.

Willie Permelia White was born 28 June 1869 in Ashland, Clay County, Alabama. She was named after her maternal Grandmother Permelia Audelina Kibler who married her Grandfather David Folk on 19 December 1837 in Newberry County, South Carolina. At the time of Willie's birth, her grandparents, were wealthy landowners living nearby. Grandpa William and Sarah Green White were also living in the area. Willie had two older sisters, Ora b: 1865 and Dora b: 1867.

Before her parents were married, James Henry White had served from 22 January 1862 to 22 December 1964 in the Confederate Army, Co. I,14th Alabama Infantry. During that time he attained the rank of lieutenant and was wounded a number of times, severely on 6 May 1864 in the Battle of the Wilderness.

It was on 22 September 1864 that James White married Ella Catherine Victoria Folk in Talladega county, Alabama. After Willie's birth, they had four more children Emma Lee, Bascom, Beula Sarah and tilden Hendricks. Bascom was named for a Union soldier who befriended James during one of his hospitalizations; Sarah was named after James' mother, and Tilden Hendricks was a “political name.” “T H” as we was always called, was born 1876, an election year; Tilden and Hendricks were the names of two political candidates.

Whiel Ella was a homemaker caring for their children, James was involved in a number of activities. In 1867 he was elected first tax assessor of Clay County, but in 1868 all officers of the county were removed by the Republican authorities as “hindrances to reconstruction.” 1870-72 James White was elected to serve in the Alabama State Legislature; he studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1874; then in 1875 he went as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention. In addition to these activities, James White practiced law in Talladega; he was a tailor and he served as a Methodist circuit rider, traveling from church to church on weekends holding religious services.

As a result of wounds received during the war, James Henry White died on 7 Aug 1877, leaving a widow with seven children: the oldest, Ora being eleven years old and the youngest, T H being only ten months old. Our future Grandma Willie Weaver was just eight years old.

Ella's parents, David and Permelia Folk, had moved on to Freestone County, Texas. Her White in-laws still lived close by but they would not have been able to be of much help. These post-war and reconstruction times were not easy ones at best for the people of Alabama.

Consequently on 15 January 1880, Ella White married William W Jones; Judge Hiram Evans performed the ceremony in her home. Jones was eight years younger than Ella and fathering seven step-children was a new experience for him. Then too Jones and Ella had Florence born 1881, Ella born 1882, Joanah born 1884, Wesley born 1886, and Lela born 1888. By all reports, Jones was not very kind to his step-children. Then on 16 Aug 1894 Ella died. The story is told that she stepped on a loose porch board which flew up and hit her in the chest, puncturing a lung; internal bleeding caused her death.

Ella Jones is buried in the Old Ashland City Cemetery in Ashland, Clay County, Alabama. The cemetery is located near downtown Ashland on 2nd Avenue (off of Highway 77) next to a Baptist church. Her tombstone reads: “Ella C. V. Folk, wife of James H. White, born 12 Aug. 1846, died 16 Aug. 1894, She hath done what she could.”

Subsequently Jones married Lela Folk Brown, Ella's widowed sister. On the 1900 census of Freestone County, Texas, they had a four-year-old daughter named Willie and a two year old son named Jacob. Still at home were three of Ella's children by Jones: Joanah, Wesley and Lela. Then there were the Brown children: Sallie born 1881, Allen born 1882, Joseph born 1884, Etta born 1886 and Berta born 1889. Since David Folk had died 4 December 1887, Grandma, Mother and Mother-In-Law Permelia folk were also living with Jones and Lela.

About the time our Willie was born, a family named Weaver had moved from Randolph County to Clay County and they lived close to Ashland. Willie White's father was a Methodist preacher while Isaac Suttles Weaver was a Baptist preacher. Naturally the two preachers knew each other. On one occasion, Rev. Weaver was visiting in the home of Rev. White. Rev. Weaver took Willie White up on his lap and said “I have a little boy about your age and his name is Willie too.” Written in their Bible is the following record: “Willie Lee Weaver and Willie Permelia White were united by marriage at her home near Ashland, Alabama on the 31st day of December in the Year of Our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and Eighty-Eight.” Reverend W O Jenkins performed the ceremony.

Will and Willie Weaver lived near Lineville where all of their children were born except Clay. They became the parents of twelve children, 5 girls and 7 boys, 9 living to maturity. In August 1901 Dora Lee was born and only lived about a week. She is buried in the Old Lineville Cemetery near her Grandparents Isaac Suttles and Keziah Ann Andrews Weaver. Willie joined the Baptist church because she overheard her two oldest daughters, Adel and Mignon, talking. One was going to be a Baptist like her Papa and the other was going to be a Methodist like her Mama.

The climate in Alabama was bad for Will Weaver's asthma. Then too, three of Willie's siblings had gone to Oklahoma: Ora who married William Roger Britton, Dora who lived with them and never married, as well as T H. So in 1909, Will and Willie decided to sell most of their things and move to Oklahoma also. They traveled by train and arrived on Thanksgiving Day. Their oldest child, a daughter named Adel, was 19 years old; their youngest child, a son named Allen, was 8 months old. He died in February 1910 and is buried in the cemetery near Mountain Park, Oklahoma. Their second son Leo was 14 years old. Their last child, a son named Clay, was born May 1811 near Mountain Park.

In 1907 Oklahoma became a state but Kiowa County where Mountain Park is located was constituted in 1901 when the area was called the Oklahoma Territory. The county was formed from Kiowa, Comanche and Apache land. Thus when the Weavers arrived, the area was in a developmental stage but Willie was a true pioneer woman. She knew how to prepare meals for her large family over a fireplace; she spun yarn on a spinning wheel, washed clothes on a rub board and ironed them with a sad iron which she heated over an open blaze. She knew how to cure illnesses with home remedies and was often called upon to deliver or assist in the deliveries of babies. Consequently many people in the area started calling her Grandma Weaver.

In January 1911, four-year-old Isaac died and was buried next to his brother Allen in the Mountain Park Cemetery which was located very near the Weaver farm, about two miles northeast of Mountain Park. Aunt Eula often relates the story of the last time she got to play with her little brother. Their father kept telling Isaac to go to bed because he was ill but Isaac didn't want to go because he said that “he would never get to play with Eula again.”

Only a few years passed before World War I started; the British got involved and soon our American boys were drafted to join the fight to stop a German effort to over-run Europe. Two of Willie's sons, Jewel and Leo, had to go. While they were overseas, Willie must have spent untold hours on her knees praying for their safety and certain return. Two of her older daughters, Adel and Mignon, got married. After the birth of two children, Adel's husband died in an accident. Now someone had to care for Catherine and B W while their mother was off teaching school to earn money to support herself and the children.

After the war, special concessions were made to veterans for homesteads. Jewel, his family, Leo and their younger brother Bascom went to New Mexico. The two older sons took up homesteads in Socorro County while Bascom worked in a store in Mountainair. It didn't take long for Jewel to decide Oklahoma was a better place to raise a family; Leo went to work for an interstate road construction company but Bascom stayed in the area, married and became the owner of the Weaver Hotel in Mountainair where he lived until his death in 1974.

Alice was a schoolteacher and eventually settled in Santa Fe, New Mexico where she taught for many years - in fact until she retired. Sisson, who was crippled, lived with his mother until her death. The other two children, Eula and Clay, married and lived close to their mother except for the World War II years which they spent in the San Francisco, California area working in the defense industry.

Will Weaver's health was never good. Before his death, he lost his eyesight and his death was attributed to “dropsy” which we call congestive heart failure. This is a slow, debilitating, incurable disease. After his death in Feb 1932, her children got together and decided to give Willie a surprise Mother's Day celebration. They planned everything down to the last detail; then while she was in church, they set up the whole thing in her home – tables, food, especially the 24 egg white angel food cake baked by Lizzie Smith (Adel's sister-in-law).

Willie usually walked the two miles home from church, but that Sunday they arranged for someone to pick her up and bring her home. When they got close to her house, Willie got upset at the sight of all the cars; she had company and didn't know what she was going to feed all of them. Imagine her surprise to find everything and everybody ready and waiting for her arrival!

Very soon thereafter, Willie and son Sisson moved into Mountain Park while son Clay took over the farm, animals, etc. Clay had married Lois in 1930 and they would soon be starting a family.

Life in town for Willie was very much the same; she took care of Sisson, delivered babies, took care of sick people, took food to needy people while she dealt with all the normal demands of her own life. She always had some of her children and grandchildren around her (in fact Aunt Mignon lived right next door). And as always, her church provided the focal point in her life; when the doors were opened, she was there to teach, give a testimony or assist with whatever needed to be done. While Will was alive, they had worn out three buggies but now that he was gone, Willie did a lot of walking. As she walked up and down the streets of Mountain Park – going to buy groceries, on her way home from church, returning from a sick bed – it was her custom to ask the people she met, “Is your calling and election sure?” (II Peter 1:10). She didn't stop asking the question until she was certain of the answer - yes. Consequently even big grown men were known to try to hide when they saw little Grandma Weaver approaching. After all, she had been there when many of them were born.

On Sunday 26 June 1949 most of Willie's family got together to help her celebrate her 80th birthday. First, they attended church where her pastor commended her for her knowledge of the scriptures and her adherence to their principles in her daily life. From the world's perspective, she had an old home, old furniture and an old age pension, but from the Lord's perspective she had the priceless gift of contentment; she made a habit of standing up straight and dressing as nicely as she could. After church, the family took baskets of food to the Wildlife Reserve in the nearby Wichita Mountains and had a picnic. Most of her children were there as well as 22 grandchildren.

Five years later Adel accompanied her mother to the Southwestern Hospital in Lawton where Willie died of heart failure on Friday the second of April. The funeral was held at 2:30 pm Sunday 4 April at the First Baptist Church of Mountain Park; Rev Raymond McDonald conducted the service. Willie had been a member of that church since 1909 and had taught a Sunday School class for at least 28 years. She was survived by four daughters: Adel Reser, Mignon Barnes, Alice Weaver and Eula York; five sons: Jewel, Leo, Bascom, Sisson and Clay; 23 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; one brother: T H White; two sisters: Emma McCain and Beula Glass; and three half-sisters: Lela Keen, Ella Emmons and Joanah Booth. She is buried in the Weaver plot in the Mountain Park Cemetery. There are four graves in the plot: Willie L and Willie P, side by side with Isaac James and Allen Burtrom below them.

I did not get to spend much time with Grandma Weaver but she made a definite impression on my life. When I was about nine years old, she sent a Bible to me with my name stamped on the front. Her son Leo who was my father encouraged me to read it. As a result, I formed the habit of reading my Bible daily, a habit which I still practice to this very day. I'm certain that Grandma Weaver prayed for my salvation, which I received when I was about twelve years of age while listening to the Old Fashioned Revival Hour on the radio.

Also I like to recall that Grandma Weaver and Uncle Sisson came to see us once. When she arrived, Grandma asked daddy where he got all those little red-headed children (Daddy was a big tease so I know he got that from his mother). While they were there, Daddy took Grandma for a ride; I was in the back seat of the car. The roads in New Mexico at that time were unpaved and very narrow in places, especially in our area between Cloudcroft and Mayhill. Grandma was in the front passenger seat and I suppose she was “putting on the brake for Daddy because he said to her, “Mama, I thought that you were prepared to die.” Her prompt response was, “I am, but I'm not ready.”

Thank you Dear Heavenly Father for my rich spiritual heritage (Psalm 61:5) and especially for Grandma Willie Permelia White Weaver.

My Probable BAGWELL FAMILY HISTORY
(Compiled by Wayne P. Bagwell 5/16/2002)
Home address -
2408 Rocky Ridge Road
Birmingham, AL 35243

We believe our man who came to America was Daniel. There were others we believe to be brothers of Daniel - William, Littleton, Jackson and James who were also in this area.
Daniel was born in 1720 and died in 1801 (Census of 1800 Wake County N.C. says Daniel Bagwell, father of John died 1801.
Daniel married Elizabeth and from some DAR records we learn that it states from an old Bible that they came from Dublin Ireland. Daniel's brothers supposedly are Richard, John, William, James and Littleton.
Children:
1. John or John Daniel
2. William **
3. Frederick
4. Nathan
The first record of Daniel we find was in Brunswick County Virginia in 1757, which was a court summons for Militia duty because he did not show up when called. Daniel purchased land in Halifax County, North Carolina in 1760 and his sons, William, Frederick, John Daniel and Nathan were born in this area. Three of these sons - William, Frederick and John Daniel were drafted into Military service during the Revolutionary war from Bute and Wake Counties North Carolina. After the Revolutionary war most of these moved South to the Greenville and Spartanburg South Carolina area.

First we will follow the paternal side:
William Bagwell (#2 above)
Revolutionary War Veteran (service record # S21057)- (son of Daniel, brother to John, Frederick and Nathan Bagwell) was born approx. 1757 and died in October 1832. Don't know where he is buried. In the pension
application of his brother John in 1832, it is mentioned that John has a record of his age by the Bible record of his father Daniel and this application is witnessed by John's brother William. In this pension application he says he is 72 yrs old. He came to Pendleton S.C. area in 1816.
Married Elizabeth
children:
1. John ? (1776-died 1837) married Frances Hulsey - 10 kids
2. Jessee (1788-died ) married Mary - 7 children.
children:
Lavinia - born 1824
Nancy - born 1828
Carolina - born 1835
Nathan - born 1817
William D. - born 1821
Temperance - born 1827 (SC)
McCager **- born 1824 - died 1896
One of the main reasons we believe Jessee was the son of William is that William was living with Jesse in 1840 census of pensioners of Rev. war. Forsyth County Ga. Census records show Jesse was born in N.C.
The McCager listed above was born in Greenville S.C. and was buried at Union Hill Baptist Church - Alpharetta Ga.
Married Harriett (born 6/18/1827 died 1890.
children:
Temperance - 1838?
James Emory **-1841
Rev. John Enoch Bagwell - 1844
Ann - 1846

LIZZIE MAGNOLIA (married John Tilmon) was my GRANDMOTHER

About the time young Daniel was making his way to America, J. C. Bach was being born. The youngest son of Johann Sebastian Bach by his second wife, Johann Christian Bach was born in Leipzig in 1735 and on the death of his father in 1750 moved to Berlin to live with his brother C.P.E. Bach. He later travelled to Italy, where he studied with the famous Padre Martini, became a Catholic and was employed for a short time as organist at Milan Cathedral. In 1762 he moved to London as a composer of Italian opera, like Handel fifty years before him, and enjoyed a considerable reputation there for a number of years, establishing a series of subscription concerts with his colleague Abel. His fame extended both to Mannheim and to Paris, but by the time of his death his popularity in London had waned. His influence on the young Mozart was considerable, and they met both in London and in Paris. He is sometimes known as "the London Bach".

He settled down in Saxe-Gotha near columbia, and later moved to a place on Crims Creek near Pomaria, where a number of Pennsylvania Dutch had settled. In 1762 he went ack to Germany and brought back another colony of settlers making certain, according to the story, that the group contained a good selection of eligible young men as potential husbands for his daughters."
